Don't just take our word for it. This is what our Scholars around the world have said about The Scholarship program...
Clarity, confidence and a fighting spirit – the headline I would put against the Marketing Academy Scholarship.
You may go in being clear on what you want to achieve but be prepared to unpack everything you thought you knew, be prepared to open your mind and be inspired by both incredible speakers & your fellow Scholars, be prepared to learn skills & techniques to grow your capability as a leader and come out the other side with real clarity on what really gets you out of bed in the morning. You’ll capture the confidence to carve out the career you want, and release the self-belief to put the right things in place to achieve it.
With the knowledge that you then have 29 other people rooting for you, not to mention the mentors, coach, speakers, alumni and Marketing Academy team you meet along the way, your fighting spirit will come to the fore to make both you and those around you true leaders of change.
The Marketing Academy is like a condensed MBA. You’ll lunch with CEOs, have breakfast with agency heads and spend days at a time with the very best young marketing talent in the UK. More than just developing your marketing ability the Academy is about developing you as a leader and preparing you for life at the top table.

Getting into the Marketing Academy has been one of my proudest achievements to date.
Getting into the Marketing Academy sets you apart from the rest.
The Marketing Academy is an opportunity not to be missed. It is a 9 month long program dedicated to making you a better leader and preparing you for life in the boardroom.
I support the Marketing Academy as it is simply irresistible. You get to spend time and help brilliant hand-picked scholars and they leave you excited and thrilled for the future of the industry.
I’ve been incredibly energized and inspired by this entire experience. And I’m really looking forward to putting into practice what was discussed at boot camp, and contributing to key projects that the broader cohort is working on as part of our paying it forward goal.
The Marketing Academy Scholarship is without doubt the ultimate accelerator for marketers. The access to knowledge, experience, networks and best practice is second to none. In the coming years I’m convinced I’ll look back and see the year with the Academy as a pivotal point in my career.
I’ve been on many courses, to many lectures, and read many books, but nothing has had the transformation impact on my leadership potential, style, and performance, that The Marketing Academy has. It is simply the definitive scheme for future marketing and business leaders.
The scholarship gave me tools and awareness to elevate my leadership style, executive presence, and advance my career at an accelerated rate. I am now in a leadership position on my team, which I thought I was years away from achieving.
The Marketing Academy Scholarship Program rocked my world and pulled back the curtain on just how big of a difference true leadership can make–far beyond the confines of the marketing profession to everything that we do.
The Marketing Academy is an unparalleled opportunity to expose yourself to leading marketers, innovators, leaders and like minded scholars. It’s impossible to not be inspired and motivated into becoming, not only a better leader and marketer, but a better person too. Grab this opportunity with both hands and hopefully you’ll get the chance to see that I’m not exaggerating…
A key element of nurturing talent is exposure; exposure to inspiring leaders and thinkers who, merely through spending a couple of hours with them, make a direct impact on your skill set and understanding of the industry you work in. There is nothing quite like the Marketing Academy for exposing talent to today’s leading marketers. It’s a personal development opportunity not to be missed!
The value is not simply the calibre of people who give up their time to talk, mentor and host. It’s the huge amount of themselves that they put into it when they do that makes it invaluable. It’s inspiring and humbling to be a part of such a varied group of people as those in my cohort. People I know are going to shape the future of our industry. They are not teaching us to manage. They are enabling us to lead.
I’m not one for soppy stories but I have truly become a better person as an output of the Scholarship. Never have I revised, reflected and refined myself so much. I am truly grateful to have been given the time to just think about the leader I want to be, not have to be. Priceless.
A standout program which provides a stimulating experience for the scholars, while driving tangible skills-building.
The Marketing Academy has harnessed and channelled my ambition, to be more productive and work smarter. The way that the course is set up has given me the tools that I need to make change and then the ongoing support and network to ensure it is followed through. The quality of people that I have come in to contact through the course has been fantastic and an inspiration as to what can be achieve.
If Carlsberg did networks…
It’s hard to sum up into words just how incredibly life-changing The Marketing Academy is as a program.
The Marketing Academy has been an amazing experience. To learn from people that have been there and developed in the industry is honestly priceless. In no other network or environment have I been in such a position that has enabled me to grow and learn on both a personal and professional level. It is like nothing I’ve done before and if you’re looking to develop yourself and your career I couldn’t recommend it more highly.
Transformational. Life-affirming. Career-defining. They’re pretty big promises for a leadership program. But, oh my, does The Marketing Academy deliver. Guided by inspiring industry leaders and mentors, a truly remarkable coach and the most amazing group of fellow scholars, I have learnt more than I thought possible about who I am, who I want to be, and what I can accomplish – both professionally and personally. To put it simply, the experience has changed my life for the better, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Three words describe this year for me – gain, grow and give. You’ll gain so much personally and professionally, more than you ever thought was possible. You’ll grow incredibly quickly as a result, stretching your capability beyond its limits. By the end, all you’ll want to do is give back to those around you, so they can benefit from at least a fraction of the experience you’ve had.
The Marketing Academy is an exciting and long needed investment to increase the resource pool of new Marketeers.
10, 15 or 20 years from now, the scholarship at Marketing Academy will be seen as the defining point of my career. The lessons we’re learning from the best minds in business may not immediately effect our actions today but it will empower us to be better leaders of tomorrow.
